If you have a potty trained pre-schooler age 3-5 (3 by 9/1/21 and 5s not yet in Kindergarten), we invite them to join the fun on Sunday mornings!

KINDERGARTEN TO FIFTH GRADE – Kindergarten to Fifth Grade – 9:30 and 11am Fellowship Hall – Welcome to KidCity where kids are taught to love Jesus, live like Jesus and shine His light to others like a “city set on a hill.” In large group, kids will worship, play games and receive a Bible message delivered by seasoned leaders. Small group activities by grade will be led by caring adults and leaders where kids will discuss the Bible lesson and apply Biblical principles to their life with crafts and activities. Everyone loves KidCity!

MINISTRY FOR SPECIAL NEEDS – This ministry is temporarily suspended. Check back for updates. Please contact Polly Jarman for more information. We offer two spaces dedicated to our special needs ministry – a classroom and an adjoining sensory room. In the classroom, we offer worship music, Bible based messages, and an activity/craft. Our sensory room allows anyone the ability to regroup when needed. The classroom is self-contained. We also have one-on-one buddies for children and teens ready for large group settings. At Mt. Bethel, our hope is for every child to feel safe and loved while having fun and learning about the love of Christ. We want the whole family to grow with us and call Mt. Bethel their church home.

4th and 5th Grade Parent/Child Life Groups  God’s Girls and Fishers of Men are 4th and 5th grade life/small groups made up of 4th or 5th graders and their moms or dads. They are mother/daughter and father/son groups that meet for the school year to study the Bible, discuss preteen real-life concerns, and serve and play together. The groups commit to meet during the school year and set their own schedule in terms of the day, location, and frequency of their meetings. For more information, contact Jenny Thompson.

CONFIRMATION – Confirmation is Mt. Bethel’s program designed to empower students and their families to connect in their relationships with God in new and growing ways. Confirmation is not a grade-bound experience, which means that students in grades 7-12 and at least one parent are encouraged to enroll whenever he or she is spiritually ready. Confirmation consists of 12 lessons, which are taught in a combination of large group gatherings, small group gatherings, and a retreat (when possible based on COVID regulations). Confirmation has concluded for 2021 and will be offered again in fall 2022. Registration will begin in summer 2022.
